2 Bedroom Detached House, Elcombe, Stroud, GL6 7LA

Tenure Type: Freehold

Property Description

A 2 bedroom detached Cotswold stone cottage occupying a truly delightful hamlet setting in the Slad Valley nestled under the Laurie Lee Wood and affording superb views across fields to the West.

The accommodation is largely over one storey and is comprised of a sitting room with impressive inglenook fireplace complete with bread oven, a long kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a range of units and a breakfast bar taking in the view down the valley and a bedroom with en suite shower and French doors to the garden on the ground floor with a second bedroom and bathroom on the first floor.

The garden, to the side and rear of the house, is principally laid to lawn with dry stone wall boundaries. A detached garage and stone-built store provide useful storage.

Elcombe is a delightful hamlet nestled under woodland and affording delightful views across the Slad Valley to the North of Stroud. Slad is famous for being the home (and final resting place) of author Laurie Lee who wrote Cider With Rosie based on his childhood in the village. Village life is focussed around the Parish Church and the Woolpack public house whilst nearby Painswick and Stroud offer a range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities. The Elliot (Swifts Hill) Nature Reserve offers views to Wales on a clear day and is criss-crossed by footpaths as well as being home to rare orchids and adders. Slad is around 2 miles from Stroud with Gloucester, Cheltenham and Cirencester 7, 11 and 14 miles respectively. The surrounding towns provide a comprehensive range of social, recreational and retail amenities to suit all tastes. Education options in the area are strong in both the private and state sectors with independent schools including Kings School, Wycliffe College, Cheltenham College, Cheltenham Ladies College and Dean Close whilst there are Grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham. Stroud station offers trains to London taking approx. 1 hour 35 minutes.

Additional Information
The cottage has a direct link with "Cider with Rosie" being the home of the school teacher referred to in the text as Miss Flynn. Miss Flynn was described as "pale as thistledown, a flock-haired pre-Raphaelite stunner, and she had a small wind-harp which played tunes to itself by swinging in the boughs of her apple trees".
